We woke up early so we could ride as much of the ebb as possible, with our probable destination being Port Ludlow. But did you wish us 'fair winds and following seas'? That is what we had, so we kept going, hoping for Friday Harbor!
Just around lunchtime we realized we needed to time our arrival at Cattle Pass and kicked it into 'Pirate Mode', running at 2000 rpms to make it in time for the slack. We got there on the dot!
|We left just before sunrise, and this was our last view of Seattle as we exited Agate Passage and headed north.|
L to R, sunrise, downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier.
|All was well. It was a smooth ride, but for swells sent out from cargo ships heading down the Sound.|
As we head onto the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the seas are still following us.
|Ah! Ahead, the San Juan Islands! I can identify Lummi, James, Mt. Constitution and Turtleback Mt.|
I can see the brown hills of American Camp on San Juan Island.
|Turtleback Mt is growing!|
|I am paging through our chart book, and my Dad's name pops out at me. He is with us!|
|Cattle Point Lighthouse marks our entrance into the San Juan Islands.|
|Approaching Friday Harbor, there are feathers in the sky.|
